I need to know which is better in the world of engineered wood floors, the SPF QTR sawn( looks like a solid piece of wood) or the plywood core and why? Also, there are lots of products out there in the market. There are some Canadian brands like Vintage and Mirage or some Italian imported brands? Which ones are better and more recommended and why? I like the Athena wood floor 6 1/2" wide and 3/4" thick , any reviews on it? Heard that this type of floor has a UV oil finish and it wears out faster? is this true?
